Japan now suddenly has conscience about human rights for leading business decision?

Japan's relationship and dealings with Myanmar are confusing !

Is it about money and resources or about human rights ?

Good for them, but the Japanese defense ministry still educates the Myanmar officers at their defense University. Shameless.

Indeed..it's a miracle. Not that Eneos had much choice left after the partners pulled the plug.

It's baffling !

The only thing that makes sense is Japan is upset its occupation of Burma/Myanmar was thwarted.

It's like history is repeating itself and Japan's quest for Asian has started up again.

Japan is feeble!

The military junta is killing its own citizens and Japanese companies are still loathe to pull out without extreme pressure.

Personally, I boycott companies which don’t have a conscience…

Leave it to Japan to try to grow a pair well after everyone else did.

days after its Thai and Malaysian partners announced they would pull out

So they either had to find new partners or pull out as well. Guess it was easier to pull out than find new partners and then try to claim it was because of a conscience. 

With the economy tanking and pressure mounting from rights groups

Would be hard really hard to find any new partners willing to risk joining ENEOS in this endeavor.
